The ever-popular pencil case was born as a result of people who wanted a desk product as an alternative to wearable fidgets and chews.
Not everyone can tolerate wearing jewellery and for some, it’s less about tolerance and more about it just not being their style. But they still have a need to chew and fidget but also need to have something that can blend in, rather than stand out. This is how the pencil case was born. We also involved the local autism group in its development and they helped us tweak the design to the product you see today.
Thousands now use this at work, college university and school as the perfect companion to that environment, allowing them to meet their needs and blend in.
A range of textures for sensory stimulation
A range of density and flexibility to meet a variety of needs
The ruler is ‘pingable’ and very stimmy
The pencil case itself is tactile and can be stroked or the bubbles ‘popped’ like reusable bubble wrap
91% of people say Chewigem helps them concentrate
Sitting subtly on your desk at work or school, whether you need to flap, rub or chew, this offers the perfect solution, one which many across the globe have embraced. Popular with educators and professionals.
“This pencil case is amazing because it is so discreet so it easily blends in with a working environment (school, work, etc.).”
Please note whilst the pencil case itself is non-toxic it is thin and not designed for chewing.

Once damaged, Chewigem should be discarded and replaced.
All products through chewing will eventually show signs of wear and tear. How long that depends on a variety of factors and it can take time to find the right product for you.
As a general guide, refer to the lifespan tables for an indication of longevity.
Check regularly for damage.
All products have been widely tested and you can be confident they are lead, latex, PVC, and phthalate-free.
In children and any person with a learning disability, that does not understand risks, it is vital all products should be used with supervision and checked regularly for damage.
As soon as wear and tear shows, the product should be discarded. This means a tear or puncture that could cause a larger section to break off.

How to care for a Chewigem without a cord (e.g. Fidgets, handhelds & bangles)
You can wash these using any of the below options:
Hot soapy water
Top rack of a dishwasher
Chewigem’s with a cord (e.g. pendants & necklaces)
With the cord on you can wash your Chewigem’s:
Hot soapy water
Washing machine on a low heat
with the cord removed:
By removing the cord the silicone section can be washed in the same way as a cordless product above.
The clasp on the cords is plastic and cannot cope with high heat and risks melting which is why we suggest the cord be removed.
This is simple, snap the breakaway clasp apart, pull the clasp back down the cord to reveal the knot, untie the knot and slide the clasp off this should allow you to take the cord off the pendant. Once washed, reverse the process, reattach the cord, slide the clasp down onto the cord, tie a knot at the end and slide the clasp back up over the knot.
